Trapped In my Head

February 16, 2021

Verse:

I'm trapped in my head,
Where is my life going. 
Wanna stay in bed, 
Now it feels like I'm losing.
I know I should go ahead,
They tell me to keep moving.
I'm filling with dread.
My phone is for calling,
Not waiting,
It feels an effort to connect,
'cause I'm failing.
I'm trapped in my head,
and I don't want anyone to see.

Chorus:

Head is pounding,
Chest keeps heaving,
Breath is leaving,
Nature's disappearing.
I'm trapped in my head,
Sinking to the seabed.
Feel like I'm screaming,
But I can't find my breath.

Bridge:

Teenagers said to be partying,
We're not nor do we feel heard.
While teacher unions say they're working,
We're left alone feeling unheard.
Our cries for help are fleeing,
Passed teachers eyes that should be connected to heads,
Feels like they've sunk down to the seabed.

Verse: 

I'm trapped in my head,
Where is my life going,
Wanna stay in bed,
Now it feels like I'm losing.
I used to be cheering,
Now my head is collapsing,
With no one else knowing.
Life's become deceiving,
The virus ever controlling,
Of our lives.
And we are losing,
With no one to tell,
How we teenagers really are feeling.

Chorus:

Head is pounding,
Chest keeps heaving,
Breath is leaving,
Nature's disappearing.
I'm trapped in my head,
Sinking to the seabed.
Feel like I'm screaming,
But I can't find my breath.
